Communication and Perception
Communication in this species, at least as pertains to reproduction, includes tactile, and chemical components. Because males drum on female silk, females are aware of their presence outside their burrows. However, it has not been shown whether females are responding to vibrations from the drumming or noise produced from the drumming. Although these spiders have eight eyes, they are reported to have poor vision.
